    I totally understand that she didn't win the half a million, but the clerk told her the jackpot was a half a million so now she is responsible for giving the clerk $250,000, it's only fair. A thousand a month could workout.

    From the story...

    While the clerk may have gotten the figure wrong, because there was no recent $500,000 jackpot in the California Lottery's Fantasy 5 game, Forrest did walk away with a $300 prize.

    There's a link below the video with the Calif lottery results.

    The lottery is the same way.

          If "it" is really from CA. That does assist us in clearing up the situation.

            I don't doubt for a second that he's so far out at the stupid end of the bell curve that it's nearly impossible to tell that it has a slope, but even exceptionally stupid people would have given up sooner despite their inability to understand something a goldfish could figure out. The asshat may not be as much of a troll as he is a moron, but he's definitely a troll.

              People with autism take things literally.  I don' know if that is the case with this guy, just throwing that possibility out there.

                I assure you I read the entire piece, I'm just saying she owes him $250,000 oh, that's simple.

                 

                I'm sure 1000 a month for 250 months wouldn't break her.

                (250000-tax)/1000, but you must think inflation, so the 1000 is a bit more every month. There is interest and inflation. Once you consume 1000 or more, for those there is no interest or capitalization. ...

                  The moral of the story, never make a promise to a clerk, you might feel obliged to fulfill the promise. Those feelings again! Any psychologist in the house costing less than 250000 in  hours of therapy? ...
